How to Determine if Your Vehicle is Flat Towable

Refer to the owner’s manual of your vehicle or contact the dealer or manufacturer of the vehicle. They can help you determine if your car, pickup, or SUV is flat towable. Will flat towing void the vehicle warranty? If the owner’s manual states that vehicle is flat towable, and you follow the manufacturer’s instructions, it will not affect your warranty.

Flat Towing Safely

Since the motorhome will be doing the heavy work, it’s important to find out what its tow rating is. Either the motorhome or chassis manufacturer should be able to provide you with this figure. Then, either consult the vehicle owner’s manual or specifications chart online to determine the vehicle weight, keeping in mind that this is the “base curb weight,” or the weight of the lowest trim level with standard equipment and all necessary fluids, but does not include any gear you might pack into it/on it.

Most motorhomes have a rearview camera that can be switched on (or stays on), which will allow you to check on the vehicle as you drive. A tire-pressure monitoring system (TPMS) will help you keep tabs on the dinghy’s tire pressures, while a braking monitor will tell you if the vehicle’s brakes are dragging or otherwise malfunctioning so you can act before any real damage occurs.

Is a supplemental braking system required to flat tow?

This can be very confusing for everyone involved. The laws by state by state vary and traveling into Canada it is required with no exception. Blue Ox stands by two important things when discussing supplemental brakes:

1. Having a supplemental brake installed helps prolong the brake life of the coach, if the coach brakes are doing all of the work to stop the combined vehicles, they will prematurely wear.

2. The supplemental brake will make the combined vehicles slow together (evenly) and eliminate premature wear to the tow bar.
